The program of Ruminant Production aims at improving the profitability and competitiveness of ruminant farms using technological innovation.

Their lines of work are:

  • Management and nutrition of dairy cattle, heifers and beef cattle.
  • Management and nutrition of sheep and goats.
  • Hormonal regulation of the metabolism of ruminants.
  • Improving end product quality (milk or meat)
  • Mathematical modelling of production processes and economic system simulations.
